Diva Challenge #278, Made by Joey #124 and a Travelling TangleBomb

UMT-Knightstar by Daniel Lamothe

This week the Diva's challenge is a "Use My Tangle" where we use tangles submitted by the Diva's followers. I love Knightstar in theory, but in practice...it's been a challenge to wrap my pen around. I practiced and practiced and practiced some more in my sketchbook. I finally grabbed a tile and got to work. I'd started this tile last week for Adele's String Challenge but only got so far as the string, a good thing I guess since this set me up with a larger axis for Knightstar.

9th in the Circle String/Coffee Ring Series 
pattern: Gra-vee

I took a little artistic license with this one...not my favorite, but it is what it is.


Here is this weeks Travelling TangleBomb~starting with the ones I completed:

I finished this with a few more Hollibaugh's and "Sprangle", "Tipple" & "Printemps"

  3. I joined the group after reading your last post, your travelling tangles are beautiful! The gra-vee in your Joey tangle made me think of a tangle of fairy lights. I really like your use of Knightstar for the diva challenge too - beautiful result. I didn't find knightstar very easy, it needs some practise.

  4. I was confused for a moment and couldn't see the Knightstar! I thought it was a previous tile for It's a String Thing (I believe it was challenge #155)... I love the tile that Susan Olsen completed. :)

    1. Thank you so much Ria! The Diva challenge definitely was the challenge of the week;-) I actually have your lovely piece next on deck to complete. I try to finish them in the order that I receive them. It's so beautiful and I really want it to be special. I'll post it here in the next couple of days along with this week's It's a String Thing tile which is almost finished.

    1. Thanks Anita! I went a little "outside-the-box" with this one. I really like the way it came out. I wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that I was watching "The DaVinci Code" whilst drawing?

  8. Oh yummy! I love all of them, but what a stroke of genius to use the IAST string, for the diva challenge, and HOW absolutely delightful that you sort of "pressed" the grid out thru the "strings" of the pattern.

    That piece reminds me of something you might find in the preparation room of the altar guild in an old Anglican cathedral. Absolutely luscious and so rich!

    1. Thanks HeidiSue! I really love how it came out. If I hadn't have flaked out on that IAST challenge, I would never have come up with this;-)
